Big Media dig in on eligibility ~ By Joseph Farah

Joseph Farah takes on the mainstream media regarding Barack Obama's birth certificate and Constitutional eligibility to be President. The latest so-called "journalist" to ridicule the "birthers" - and in this case it is State Representative Leo  Berman (R-TX) - is CNN's Anderson Cooper.

Joseph writes that he'd like to ask Mr. Cooper some questions:
What's wrong with wanting to see Obama's birth certificate? Why is it so threatening to you? Where is your journalistic curiosity? Why were CNN and Dan Rather so eager to see George W. Bush's National Guard records that had no bearing on his constitutional eligibility to serve in office? Why is there a lower standard of accountability for Barack Obama than any previous president?

I guess the lesson to draw from Anderson Cooper's hostile interrogation of Texas state Rep. Leo Berman is that the Old Media, which mishandled the eligibility story from the beginning, is now determined to ensure America never learns the truth at their expense.

Berman's offense was introducing a bill into the Texas Legislature that would require any candidate for president or vice president to provide a birth certificate to the Texas secretary of state to ensure constitutional eligibility before getting on the ballot.

It's a perfectly logical and reasonable and commendable action. It should involve no controversy whatsoever – unless you believe Barack Obama is above the law, as apparently CNN's Anderson Cooper does.

Cooper demonstrated his complete ignorance of the facts by beginning: "There's a certificate of live birth, which is what the state of Hawaii sends out. Why isn't that good enough?"

  1. The way to break this case wide open is to force a prosecution of Speaker Pelosi for perjury in contradicting herself by swearing to and filing two distinct and materially different "Official Certifications of Nomination" with Secretaries of State of the 50 states. One says Obama is constitutionally qualified to serve, the others don't. If Nancy can have doubts, why aren't we allowed the same luxury? Read about it here:
